    Default ISIS is attacking the U.S. energy grid

    The Islamic State is trying to hack American electrical power companies -- but they are terrible at it.

    U.S. law enforcement officials revealed the hack attempts on Wednesday at a conference of American energy firms who were meeting about national security concerns.

    I'm wondering what would happen if they got good at it?

    After more than 10 years in concentrated solar power, my wife now works for a major electric company, and she has been involved in this in both careers. After 9/11, the federal government concluded that we were incredibly susceptible to attacks on our electric grid. So the heavy regulatory hand was applied and power plants and electric companies have lots of hoops to jump through to prevent precisely this.

    In other words, hopefully if they get good at it, it won't matter.
